I did a video in Adobe Premiere of 16 minutes. I want to put the video in a DVD+R disc so when a person inserts it in the DVD player connected to the TV, it will begin automatically. Therefore I chose to render my video in Premiere as format H.264 Blu-ray with preset of HD 1080i 29.97 (1.33 PAR). I put that the field order is Upper First and that the TV Standard is NTSC.

The video was rendered as final video.m4v with an extra file final video.m4v.xmpes . Now I wanted to burn my DVD+R disc with these two files.

I went to my File Explorer and clicked on DVD RW Drive (F:). It opened a screen that says how do I want to use this disc and I chose "With a CD/DVD player" (can't be edited). I put these two files in the disc (with the desktop file that was put automatically) and burned the disc!

Afterwards, I put it in the DVD player and the screen in the player shows "Err".

I'm sorry I gave so many information but I don't know which do I need to give so you can help me, I just have one disc left. Maybe the problem is that I put a Blu-ray file in a DVD disc? Which format and preset should I use?


You need to make an authored (menu-less) DVD using Encore.

Note that the resolution will be 720x480 (NTSC), since DVD-Video doesn't have HD support.

  • Why do I need a menu-less video? Why doesn't work just the video alone? – Pichi Wuana Feb 7 '16 at 17:35
  • When you author the DVD in Encore, you want to skip the menu since you wish the video to autoplay once inserted in the DVD player. – Gyan Feb 7 '16 at 17:50
  • Oh... wow. Thanks. Never would thought that's the way it's done. – Pichi Wuana Feb 7 '16 at 18:50

I'm not an expert with optical technology but I believe your assumption is partially correct. You encoded your video in Blu-ray format, which cannot not be read by your DVD player. I have seen posts that say you can burn the Blu-ray files to a DVD like you did, but you're missing the Blu-ray player that can actually play it.

I'd take the burning Blu-ray to a DVD part with a grain of salt. Some posts said you have to use a ripping program and some said you could just burn it straight to the disc.

Here is where I read that information. I would also assume that burning the Blu-ray to a DVD would give it a bit less quality

  • I understand. If I put a correct format video in a DVD+R disc that I didn't burn (that I can edit), in the DVD player: will it work? – Pichi Wuana Feb 6 '16 at 18:50
  • @PichiWuana Yeah as long as you write to the DVD in a format your DVD player can read, you'll have no problem. – DrZoo Feb 6 '16 at 19:14
  • I don't know why my DVD continues to show in its screen Err... – Pichi Wuana Feb 6 '16 at 19:28
  • @PichiWuana did you make a new disc and it still does that? – DrZoo Feb 6 '16 at 19:59
